Alphabe - Thursday: A is for AIRSHOW

I have decided to participate in Alphabe- Thursday hosted by Jenny Matlock. I am so glad that I found this at the beginning rather than at some random off-the-wall letter at the end of the alphabet.

Anyways, this week we begin with the letter A.

A is for AIRSHOW and AIRPLANES -- In 2008, we took the kids to their first ever airshow at NAS Oceana (Naval Air Station Oceana in Virginia Beach, Virginia). None of the kids had ever been to one before. We went all 3 days. Friday evening we went for the couple of hours they had events going on. The kids were so fascinated with the planes. On Saturday, we went all day and watched everything we could. We tried to get as close to the demonstration planes as we could. All the kids fell in love with the Blue Angels. We went back on Sunday, the 3rd and final day. We were walking around looking at the exhibits and shop booths when a man approached us. He said, "Hi, I'm _______ and I am here with Miller Light. We have some VIP tickets, do you guys want them?" At first we were unsure. Then he handed them to us and told us to follow him to the VIP row. He presented our tickets to the front booth, we were given armbands and he took us straight to the Miller Light VIP tent. We were allowed to get food and beverages for us and the kids from their food tent all day. And we were front row to the Blue Angels show. We were in absolute heaven! We bought the kids each a small blue angel replica.
